Can somone who has a Porter Cable 7518, mounted in one of the fancy new
lifters, measure the height, and let me know what it is.
I'm designing a new router table, and though I don't own them yet, I
want to design the table to fit them for the future.
If you are wondering where/how far down you can put an
intermediate cross piece/shelf I remember measuring mine (An
Ultimate Router Table) as being 13"(ish) and I ended up
allowing 15" in the end to allow for proper air circulation.
I have the green router raiser that's the same as the blue
(bleu David) one which is also the same as the red one
depending on where you buy it/who you buy it from.

It is the same height in the lifter as out. The router does not change.
As for how much clearance below the top surface, it will be the router
height with bit in place and lowered to the most shallow working position
for that bit. The mechanism of the lift may or may not protrude below the
router. That is brand specific.
You'd be best off to get the measurements of a couple of brands. My router
is 9" below, but the Benchdog lift is about 10 1/2"
